Pursuant to Government Code 27293, if all or a portion of a document is in a language other than English, the recorder must not accept it for recording. The customer should bring the original document to a certified or registered court interpreter or to an accredited translator.
The certified/registered court interpreter or accredited translator will translate the foreign language portion into English and give the customer a signed, completed, and notarized Declaration. The customer should then bring the original document, the English translation, and the notarized Declaration to the County Clerk’s office. The County Clerk will verify that the translation was performed by a certified/registered court interpreter or by an accredited translator. Upon verification, the County Clerk will prepare a Translation Certification and staple all the documents together. The County Clerk’s office charges a fee of $10.00 for this service.
The customer may then submit all documentation to the Recorder for recordation.
